Fighting back against Racial Profiling

Anthony Hernandez was arrested and spent a month in custody because of racial profiling and presumptions by the arresting officer. It might have been far worse had it not been for the persistence of his defense attorney, who kept demanding that prosecutors turn over body camera footage of the incident from the arresting officer. Once the officer turned it over to the prosecutor’s office, almost immediately the Sacramento DA dropped the charges. The Vanguard speaks to Attorney Jennifer Mouzis about the arrest and the illegal activities of the Sacramento Police.

Reckless Driving

Reckless Driving Defense Attorney in Sacramento, CA

While reckless driving can seem like a minor infraction, it’s actually a very serious charge which can carry with it stiff penalties.

Reckless driving is usually a misdemeanor crime. If convicted, you will have a permanent mark on your criminal record.

Many people are surprised by a reckless driving charge, because they thought they were simply being ticketed for speeding or another type of traffic ticket.

What Is Reckless Driving And What Are The Penalties?

The state of California defines reckless driving as “driving with ‘willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.’” The circumstances surrounding the charge – such as how fast you were going and whether you were swerving or tailgating – will be investigated.

These circumstances will play a role in what penalties you will face should you be convicted. If the court finds you guilty of reckless driving, you will be sentenced to up to ninety days in jail and/or up to a $1,000 fine.

Often, reckless driving charges are the result of an honest mistake:

  • Was there an emergency that contributed to excessive speeding?
  • Were you distracted while you were driving?

If you are being charged with reckless driving, it’s important to contact a skilled criminal defense lawyer that can present your case in the best possible light.

Jennifer Mouzis is a reliable and experienced attorney who will support you through the process of litigation and increase the chances that you will have a desirable outcome in court.

Don’t let an honest mistake ruin your driving record and leave you with a criminal record for the rest of your life.

What Is The Difference Between A Misdemeanor And A Felony?

There are key differences between a misdemeanor and a felony in the judicial system.

A misdemeanor is a minor criminal offense, whereas a felony is a much more serious, usually violent, criminal offense.

Examples of felony violations include:felony violations

  • murder
  • possession of dangerous drugs for sale
  • robberyrape

Examples of misdemeanor violations are:

  • petty theft
  • driving on a suspended license and drunk driving

The essential difference is the severity of punishment.

A felony conviction can lead you in state prison, but a misdemeanor will only have you do time in the local or country jail. A felony can involve a fine up to $10,000 and a sentence of up to life in prison or even the death sentence for special circumstance murder. A misdemeanor is generally punishable by a $1,000 fine and a maximum of one year in count jail.

In addition to the longer punishment, a person convicted of a felony: loses the right to vote, cannot possess firearms, cannot obtain certain licenses, such as a hunting or a fishing license and is also required to disclose a conviction when applying for jobs.
